M The World of OLED Lighting Mike Simpson Philips Lighting
OLEDs What is OLED? OLED stands for “organic light emitting diode”. Name is misleading: has nothing to do with animals or plants. “Organic” because materials used in the production of OLEDs come from the field of organic chemistry (carbon based compounds).
OLEDs Known for displays, new for lighting OLEDs are used as displays in smart phones and mobile gaming devices. First commercial available large OLED TVs announced at CES 2013 – screen size of 55”, price of £8,000. However: First prototypes were shown already in 2004. 9 years+ to the market. Relatively new on the market:
OLEDs Why are OLEDs a revolution to lighting? < 2 mm light emitting area Point source Linear sources 4
OLEDs A new perception of light Rather than a beam emerging from a single light-emitting point, light coming from the larger surface provides pleasant, uniform illumination. The OLED produces a soft light, casting no shadows and no glare:
OLEDs Instant on and dimmable Instant on and smooth dimming are possible.
OLEDs Ultra-flat and ultra-light OLEDs are only between 1.8 mm and 0.7 mm thin and a lightweight..
OLEDs All shades of white The OLED is able to produce the cool white emitted by an LED as well as the warm white radiated by an incandescent bulb.
OLEDs All colors The colours emitted are produced by mixing the Red, Green and Blue OLED compounds in specific amounts and combinations, this way exact colour shades can be created.
OLEDs All shapes As well as symmetric forms like e.g. ovals or rounds, all kinds of free shapes are possible.
OLEDs Light as a material OLEDs opens up a whole new world of opportunities for working with light. Functional as well as decorative, and surprisingly easy to use, organic lighting represents a new raw material.
OLEDs Application in architecture, interior- and product-design The thin, flat nature of the OLED makes it possible to use and integrate light in ways that are impossible with LEDs – or any other lighting source for that matter.
OLEDs will be color tunable in about 5 years from now.
OLEDs Transparency Transparency in the off-state is perceived as a very attractive product feature, because no other material can make glass glow – without being visible in the off-state.
OLEDs Transparency Transparency in the off-state is perceived as a very attractive product feature, because no other material can make glass glow – without being visible in the off-state. Transparent OLEDs will be available in 2014.
OLEDs Flexibility The next thing we are working on, are flexible OLEDs. Flexible OLED displays are already on the market, but if it comes to small molecule OLEDs in lighting applications, it is still in a research phase. OLEDs will be flexible in 5 years from now.

The World of OLED lighting Summary OLEDs are more than just another light source. OLEDs are the last revolution in lighting. OLEDs are highly adaptable material that emits beautiful light. OLEDs remove the boundaries of shapes and size associated with conventional lighting. OLEDs are extremely thin and easy to integrate.
